• Nice cars, all of them. But at this moment in my life it's the new Kia Sorrento coming out mid-year that has my attention :)

  • They've selected the A350. Haven't ordered it. In the mean time Boeing starts preparing another bid. Lots of water to pass before this is real. Let's see what happens.

  • Two points;1. In Qantas terms, this means they'll probably do something just under what is currently flying in Emirates, SIA et al right now. 2. Maybe just maybe, project sunrise is not going to be the 777x or A350. Maybe it will be the 789, with additional fuel tanks. With Air NZ operating A...

  • I'd say not. The A380s have sub 10 years left in the fleet. I'd say they'll be gone sooner.

  • Qantas are at an inflection point when it comes to their fleet. Looking out 10 years, apart from the 787s, the rest will start needing replacement. This is an enormous opportunity for them to drive costs down via a bulk deal, but also improve fleet commonality to bring in all those additional b...

  • Sydney to NYC with the family

    I do this trip twice a year, sometimes out of BNE sometimes out of SYD.First up, depends on what class you're flying. If it's business or PE, then VA is hands down the better of the two for the SYD - LAX leg. If it's economy, then they are pretty similar. They both use 9 abreast 777s, but I prefe...
